Top Supercomputers to Shake Up Earthquake Modeling

September 29, 2022

Two DOE-funded projects — and a bunch of top supercomputers — are converging to improve our understanding of earthquakes and enable the construction of more Read more…

Supercomputer Simulations Elucidate Shakes of Explosions, Earthquakes

August 13, 2022

Explosions are the bread and butter of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), one of the labs under the auspices of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). But not all explosions, of course, are nuclear – and now, researchers at LLNL and waveform simulation startup Mondaic have created a new, supercomputer-powered model to model the ground shaking that ensues...

Supercomputer Research Uses Earthquakes to Model the Planet

March 31, 2022

The deepest hole ever dug by humans reached just over seven and a half miles into the planet — less than 1/1000th of the Earth’s nearly 8,000-mile diameter. Read more…

How HPC is Shaking Up Modeling of Mysterious Earthquakes

July 6, 2021

Earth modeling is extraordinarily complex – and when the earth quakes, it’s no different. The mechanisms of many earthquakes consistently flummox seismologi Read more…

NCSA Supercomputer Helps Identify Tsunami Risks

May 22, 2021

Researchers don’t always understand why certain tsunamis are so devastating: take, for instance, the 2018 tsunami that struck Sulawesi in Indonesia, killing m Read more…

EQSIM: Exascale Computing Project Moves Needle on Earthquake Risk Assessment

Porting CUDA Applications to Run on AMD GPUs

Giving developers the ability to write code once and use it on different platforms is important. Organizations are increasingly moving to open source and open standard solutions which can aid in code portability. AMD developed a porting solution that allows developers to port proprietary NVIDIA® CUDA® code to run on AMD graphic processing units (GPUs).

This paper describes the AMD ROCm™ open software platform which provides porting tools to convert NVIDIA CUDA code to AMD native open-source Heterogeneous Computing Interface for Portability (HIP) that can run on AMD Instinct™ accelerator hardware. The AMD solution addresses performance and portability needs of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and high performance computing (HPC) for application developers. Using the AMD ROCm platform, developers can port their GPU applications to run on AMD Instinct accelerators with very minimal changes to be able to run their code in both NVIDIA and AMD environments.

QCT HPC BeeGFS Storage: A Performance Environment for I/O Intensive Workloads

A workload-driven system capable of running HPC/AI workloads is more important than ever. Organizations face many challenges when building a system capable of running HPC and AI workloads. There are also many complexities in system design and integration. Building a workload driven solution requires expertise and domain knowledge that organizational staff may not possess.

This paper describes how Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a long-time Intel® partner, developed the Taiwania 2 and Taiwania 3 supercomputers to meet the research needs of the Taiwan’s academic, industrial, and enterprise users. The Taiwan National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC) selected QCT for their expertise in building HPC/AI supercomputers and providing worldwide end-to-end support for solutions from system design, through integration, benchmarking and installation for end users and system integrators to ensure customer success.
